habitual jaaaolutia?is for betterL.©r for w^^se. We, as a rule, try 
to make these resolutions so that we can make ourselves better 
than we were in the past yettr. 

I for one, believe that to these resolutions should be added 
the /resolution that we should try to keep within us, the feeling 
for our felbW man that we develop every year during^a yule-^ 
iide season. Durii^ the yuletide season, the spirit of brotherly^' 
love dominates our actions and intensifies in us a spirit of .good 
will and warm friendliness toward our neighbors.

Contrary to popular belief, popular girls and popular fellows 
really need advice, for popularity can be a hazard as well as a 
benefit. The popular person, who sees hirtiself slipping, without 
knowing why, is far more tragic than the one who has yet to 
attain popularity. 

If you are popular, a frantic fear of antagonizing those who 
put you on top can make you edgy and even change your person - 
ality to a certain degree. , You develop all' sorts of ways of say- 
ing, "No". This can sesult in decay of your personality, because 
the open, honest, direct person that everyone admired becomes 
obscure. You learn to say "maybe"^, "111 see", "perhaps". The 
people who maintain that a popular persons gets ahead by cur- 
rying favor will like this, but your friend will not. If they have 
always counted on you for consistency, their xipinioh of you suf- 
fers. '■ ■ _ 

^ The reason for your popularity in the first place is probably 
because you are a leader. You have qualities other people want 
to imitate. By trying to second-guess the crowd, you lose this 
leadership and eventually ypur personality. Don't be afraid to 
declare yourself., Consideration fpr other p«ople helps make you 
popular and it, l^eeps you i>bpular. _

Jean Destine and his company pre- 
sented "Fiesta in Haiti" as our Feb- 
ruary Artist Course program. The 
inrogram featured a group of dances 
which used as their background the 
folklore and voodSS cereffiofilei — bt 
the Haitim^epijiBUc,, _ : . 

The dances of the country combine 
the primitive rituals of the African 
homeland with the refined and ele- 
gant dances of the French court of 
the 18th Century. A dance called 
"Witch Doctor" illustrated the African 
influence as it was a voodoo dance in 
which a witch» doctor called upon the 
gods to aid him in restoring health to 
his patient. Quiet in contrast was the 
dance "Martinique," which had a 
marked French influence with its gay 
frivolous costumes of the. court 

Another element of the program 
which jBdded .a flare of the unusual 
was the drunnmlng of Alphonse Cim- 
ber. He exercised his ability as he 
accompanied all the dances, and fea- 
tured two solo numbers as well. 

The accurate precision and the agil- 
ity of the dancers^ have brought them 
universal proclaim as true perfor- 
mers of the native folk dances of

Mansfield will lose many outstand- 
ing personalities with the May gradua- 
tion. Among them is Robert W. Benson, 
who has been selectfid as "Student of 
the Month" of May. 

Bob, as he is better known, is the son 
of Mr. and Mrs. Harry E. Benson of 321 
Clay Ave., Scranton, Penna. He grad- 
uated from Wellsboro High School 
where he was class president three 
times and President of the Boy'a Qub 
to his senior year. .. 

When he came io Manifteld he was 
again recognized aa> a leader, fai his . 
Sophomore year he was Vice-Presi- 
dent of the class and together with 
Paul Bojvles originated the practice 
of having concessions in the Boy's 
Dorm to raise money for equipment. 

In his Junior year of college Bob was 
a m^b«p <^ the Mm^'a Dormitory 
Council and master of ceremonies for 
the class talent show. He was .chosen 
lor President ol Uie student Council m 
his Senior year at M.S.T.C, duplicat- 
ing the role of student leader which 
he had held m high school. 

His. talents to the entertainment 
field were ilrst di^;>layed to the jitu- 
dent body late in his second year of 
college. Since then he and Bill Trow-, 
bridge have provided the surrounding 
area with, many hilarious and enjoy- 
able times. Their spontaneous musical- 
comedy routines have delighted au- 
diences of the Lions Club Minstrels 
and Talent Shows, as well as informal 
gatherings on campus. - ^ • ' 

Bob hopes lx> ehW^e" Navy to 
gust where he will \)e enrolled to O.- 
CS. and will have further opportun- 
ities for using his leadership and enter-

New Student Council 
Begins Activities 

The dream of having a student un- 
ion at Mansfield may soon become 
reality. At the toitial meeting of the 
new Student CouncU, plans "for this; 
student union were fonmilated. Al- 
though a definite site for it has not 
been chosen, there are so many pog^ 
sible sites here on campus that the ful- 
fillment of these plans should come to 
the near future. 

The hieeting itself was pronounced a 
success by presidentTflect Tom Hol- 
loran. Plans and committees for next 
yearns program on campus were also 
discussed and set up. The first' ev«at 

The Student Council's db(^ce for the 
April Student of the Month is' Charles. 
Fickinger. Charlie, the son of Bdr. and 
Mrs. George H. Grabe, of 210 North 
East Street, Coudersport, Pa., is a first 
semester freshman. 

CounciTa idecUon was based on 
Charles' cerotyceous actions toe morn- 
ing of the tragic flra which recently 
swept through a hunting cabto near 
Coudersport, claiming the liVes of two 
students, one a Mansffeld "Cljllege 
junior, and seriously injuring another. 

Bom at Ford City, Pennsylvania, he 
later moved to Coudersport and grad- 
uated from Coudersport Aigh School 
in 1946. After attending Lafayette Col- 
lege for one yearpr Ghftrie^j jo|ned the 
U. S. Army in 194d. During service 
he was stationed at Camp Pickett, 
Fort Dix and Fort Monmouth. He alSO 
saw 16 months action in Korea. Upon 
leaving the service, he worked for the 
Pennsylvania Department of High- 
ways. untU. his conning to M.S.T.C. 

Since entering Mansfidd, Charles 
has made *many. friends and participat- 
ed in campus activities; he alao played 
on the J. V. basketball team. A secon- 
dary student, he is majoring in math 
with a science minor. 

Charles has expressed the hope that 
Jim Berger, ho^ltalized by the acci- 
dent, will be back to school next faU. 
He feels that Jim would be very glpa 
to hear from all hi» firienda hare at 
Mansfield. ' 

on the agenda, .that' of ftfeshmim week 
activities, was put under the chairman- 
ship of Vince Smichowski • 
As a climax to this year's activities 
and as an introduction for the coming 
year, the student ' governing' bodies of 
M.S.T.C. held their annual banquet at 
the Mark Twato Hotel to Eknira on 
May 6th. "^Jtie Presidents of the dormi- 
tory councils, the student council, the 
day students cltib, each gave a rtiort, 
informal speech. The mato address 
was delivered J?y Presid«it Morgan.

Six-year-old Mary reported to- the 
teacher that, "Dickie said a naughty 

"iP^t so, Mary? What did he say?" 

"'WeU," replied Mary emphatically, 
"My mother told me never to repeat 
such words. But if you'll say all the 
' bad words you know, I'll . tell you 
When you come, to it."

WH AT f S SC|f<10T. .SPIRIT? 

^nJ^ewlMembeis Added to M.S.T.C Faculty 

Th« starei^rtK of tbe spirit reflects the learninflr of the mbid. 
Both spirit and^ mind are a part of the body of avat Alma Mater. 
School spirit cannot exist without th6 thinking mind, but the 
mind is dull in the absence of school spirit. Bless the Freshman 
Class! They have rekindled the spirit's torch. Is it to die again? 

To wh(»n does our loyalty belong? Does it belong to cliques. 
: os* does it belongr to o«r scho^ ? 1!^ i>and m eK>t lay , 

"Because I am not an athlete I will not cheer at a football game,'' 
or the dean's list student does not say to the student of lower 
standing, "I have not time for you." Or does this happen? 
Again, the senior does not say to the .freshm&n, "Get out of my 
way, you little pest," or the fraternity bro&er or cliib' member 
does not say to tBTouftlitef j ^eSuse'T do not liKe^ yW T will 
blackball you from my organization regardless of your qualifi- 
cations." Or does this dissention take place on our compus? 
To whom does our loyalty belong? * 

If I speak in the tongues of students and of prdfessors^rbut 
have not school spirit, I am a blatant reciter or an eloquent rat« 
tie. And if i pay attention in class, and understand the myster- 
les of my professors, and have a sharp wit, so as to make A's in 
ihy hardest subjects, but have not schopl spirit, I know nothing. 
If I give up all my flree time to attend sports and other schocA 
events merely f or exhil^tl<)n, but'Mye not sdiool spirit, it were 
better if I had stayed in bed. 

_ School spirit is true and enduring ; school spirit is not empty 
or masked it is not restless or resentful. School spirit does not 
f aiseiy accuse ; it is not frivolous or contemptible ; it does ' not 
rejoice in a loss, but smiles in the face of one. School spirit 
hem the brunts of melon-heads ; it believes in itself ; hoped ior the 
best, endures the worst. Schdbl spirit never fails. 

School spirit illumines the pathway of learning. Without it 
our wook seems meaningless and fruitless, our play, dull and un- 
inviting. With it we can meet all challenge with true confidence 
and strength; with it we achieve final victory.^ 

So abide sdholorship, sxMeivmieat, these tluree,
